The company has shared a chart that shows the power distribution if you want to connect multiple devices to the brick. Depending on the number of ports in use and their order, the output power when simultaneously charging two devices is either 20W + 45W or 15W + 15W. When you use all three ports simultaneously, the power output is 15W + 15W + 45W.

It’s also compatible with various fast-charging types, such as PD3.0 (Power Delivery) and QC3.0 (Quick Charge). The company claims the device can fully juice up a MacBook Air M2 in around two hours and charge an iPhone to 50 percent in 30 minutes.

Currently, you can get this charger for just Rs 3,143/$39 (Without Indiegog tip) as a pre-launch offer, but after its release, the price will increase to $79 (Approx. Rs 6,500). The page states that the company will start shipping it in March 2023. With the retro Macintosh-like design, there’s no denying that it’s an excellent design choice and will turn heads.
